Screen adaptation of a classical gem of Argentinian literature.
A
n award winning story by Silvina Ocampo

Director Daniel Rosenfeld (Winner of Best New Director Award at the Venice Film Festival) has successfully brought Silvina Ocampo's disturbing strangeness to film, making it a sublime, stylish and hypnotic exploration of the magical realm from which all art originates: the domain of the in-between, the space between two notes, the crack where light gets in.

Beautiful and fragile Cornelia returns to her supposedly empty Alice in Wonderland-like childhood home.  As the mirrors begin reflecting her multiple personalities, lovers mysteriously appear one by one as if wanting to keep her from entering the other side from where there is no return.

The filmmaker manages to stay true to the original concept of the writer who intends the viewer to be co-creator in this suspenseful tale of love, longing, destiny and redemption. As if by magic, when Cornelia looks into the mirror, we see our own psyche in the reflections.

Worthy of comparison to the work of great masters, Robert Wilson, Tarkovsky and Matthew Barney, ECHOES OF TIME creates a stunning visual portrait of the most challenging issues we are facing today: endless wars, migration, lost values, the isolation of the ruling from the ruled and the surreal nature of our reality.

Better than Bridget Jones Diaries

'A SPELL ON YOU' follows the story of a young woman trying desperately to manifest love, navigating the pitfalls of growing-up and hoping to find HIM along the way.

This masterful film sits somewhere between Downton Abbey and Bridget Jones Diary.

Becky has recently finished university is working a dead-end office job. Why can't she find the man of her dreams? Recognising her match proves tricky when she isn't altogether sure who she is. The quest seems as mystifying as pulling a rabbit out of a hat.

This big-hearted romantic comedy gives us a peek into the millennial generation's search for love. They don't walk arm in arm along the Seine in perfectly cut trench coats. They don't hold tight to a handsome man on the back of a Vespa. They drink far too much, dance ironically in circles, and snog their friends.

Growing up is not for the faint of heart.

'A SPELL ON YOU' is a film for the funny, ugly and most importantly the magical in us all.

The timeless classic and eternally beloved story of pure and idealistic love.

Few works so completely capture a universal aspect of human experience the way Shakespeare’s “Romeo and Juliet” captures pure and idealistic love. Few works have lasted in time and been so beloved that they are refreshed with each generation. Look at popular music charts and references will abound. Look at school productions and the play will be there. Here now is the story expressed in stunning animation in an age sensitive portrayal aimed at pre and young teen audiences (8 to 16). We forget sometimes that Shakespeare’s Juliet was thirteen years old and Romeo not much older. “Romeo and Juliet” fills any family oriented line-up and amply fills the role of beloved classic.

Touching, yet not overly emotional, it draws you in from the first moment and transports you to 1890 with IRIS, who, abandoned by her artist mother, discovers the joys of friendship and family on a remote island.It's a story of the human condition and how even deep prejudices can be overcome by the simple act of kindness and the willingness to strive for individuality.

STRANGER THAN PARADISE meets CINEMA PARADISO in this bittersweet tale of an unusual quest, based on a true story. Unique, yet symbolic, is the story of the American professor of Jewish descent who is compelled to turn his back on a successful career and get on the road that takes him through danger, the unknown and the surreal, back to the roots to reclaim his identity.
